Thinking Cute Kid Girl Looking. Instagram Effect Portrait Let’s get political! Women have taken the brunt of jokes as the ‘behind the man’ power, despite working just as hard to keep families, towns, cities, and communities together. Despite women’s participation, men have been the deciding factor for women’s rights. Whether it comes to abortion, pay scales, positions in the business world, the truth is, women have had to fight for every ‘right’ they want. But — women hold up half the sky. Women count! Women matter! What do you want to tell your legislature about your rights as a woman. If you are a man reading this, what right are you afraid women might get? And why? Write in detail why you hold your point of view. And don’t forget, you can do something with your point of view. Find the address of your legislator, congressman, or other political advocate.

Keep the pen moving,
